Tuesday Teasers: "Wildwood," "Night Strangers," "The Sword"


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on  that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away!   You don’t  want  to  ruin the  book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   
Gerard's:
Nothing her parents had told her, nothing she'd ever learned in school, could possibly have prepared her for this thing that was happening. Or really, what was to follow.
I finished reading Wildwood by Colin Melot but loved it so much that I wanted to do a teaser from it, so here it is from page 8:

"You really don't hear it?" Hallie asked in a small but intense voice. "You really don't hear them?"
There was that word again: them.
From page 64 of The Night Strangers by Chris Bohjalian.

Karen's:
"God knows you and has known you since before you were born. And He chose you to help a poor old man that was dying."
From page 108 of The Sword--The Last Cavaliers: Two by Gilbert Morris

  2. That "them" is certainly creepy. With a title like The Sword - the Last Cavaliers, I tend to think the old man is more than your average old man.
